Hollywood legend Will Smith has overcome a lot of adversities in his life, which include his time as an African American man in Hollywood. Undoubtedly, he has encountered several racist people in his lifetime and it is likely Will Smith continue to face racism.
However, it seems Smith has a very amusing idea when it comes to racist people. While speaking on ‘Pod Save America’ podcast, Will Smith discussed his experience with racism before and after he joined Hollywood.
He was asked about his personal interactions with racist people, to which Smith revealed that Smith was called the N-word at least five times to his face. Smith then amusingly said that anyone who called him racist clearly wasn’t very smart, which he stated was due to ignorance.
Smith essentially said that ignorance can easily be cured with proper education, but there is no quick solution to removing evil from the world.
Will Smith’s new Netflix series called ‘Amend: The Fight for America’ released last month and it tackled several themes that are worth discussion.
